I've Been Adopted!Microscope

Gender: Female

Age: 3

Microscope is adjusting well to life in a real home for the first time. Things such as wash machines, dryers, ceiling fans, and stairs hold no fear over her, though the vacuum is still a little intimidating.  She is a very sweet, friendly dog, and though everyday she faces the challenge of encountering something that is foreign to her, she is very inquisitive and willing to learn new things.

Being in a home for the first time in her entire life, she doesn't know certain boundaries such as things that are okay to chew and things that aren't, and the fact that dogs do not belong on table tops. 🙂

However, she is a very bright girl and with patience and dedication, she will learn what it means to be a house dog.  In the brief time that we have had her so far, she has already learned "Sit," and is working on learning "Leave it," and "Drop it" which will come in handy as her little nose and inquisitive nature tend to lead her astray at times.

She loves people and when we are out at the dog park she will go up to everybody to say hello, in fact when we first brought her home, she was trying to greet the people on TV by standing up on the TV stand and wagging her tail. She gets along very well with other dogs and has been learning how to play over the past week.  She loves to play tug with them and also enjoys chewing on both stuffed animal toys and rope toys. As she builds confidence she plays more often and longer, not just with the dogs in the house, but the humans too.

She is a very quiet little girl, and we heard her bark once for the first time yesterday during playtime with our other dogs.  She gets along well with children too.

Due to her quiet nature and small size, she would probably do well in an apartment, as long as she is able to go out for long walks or to the dog park to run, because she has a lot of energy.  Though she loves to play hard and run around, when she is ready for a break, she has learned that a lap is a pretty good place to be.   She does very well in her kennel, though since learning that such things as couches exist, she much rather prefers though!  She is not completely housetrained yet, but every day she makes improvements, so it shouldn't be long until she is!  She is adjusting well to being on a leash during walks and will go potty while on the leash.

    Microscope won over our whole family as soon as we saw her. How can anyone deny that face? Her story intrigues us and our family may be interested in showing her more of what the world has to offer. If she is still available we’d be interested in learning more about her. Thank you.

      Melissa, we love it that you’re excited about Microscope! Please fill out an adoption application on the website. That will get the approval process started.

    I am very interested in her. I will be coming to Alexandria to visit and see her. I have a 5 year old beagle right now that I have decided needs a friend!

    Every time I look at Microscope chewing on her toy, I have to smile. She is just too cute.
